Can you tell me what the coin says and which maneki neko is facing the right direction (one is a mirror image)? Much appreciated.

I believe it is the amount of the coin (10 million ryo) and the one on the right would be the correct direction. Don't hold me to that though.

Those are definitely Maneki Neko's but I am almost certain the symbols are Mandarin. Go here, they are better than me.

Thank you. I did some independent research (read: Googling) and saw the thing about the value as well. I guess that is the general consensus. I also learned that the right paw raised invites good fortune, while the left paw raised invites customers. The more you know...

Well considering Kanji is mostly just Chinese characters adopted by the Japanese, you are technically right.

I took a semester of Chinese and can tell by the way the character is written that the one on the right is not mirror image. (Obviously, they're not the same photograph, hence the lighting difference.)
